New Japan G1 Climax 2019 – Night One – 06/07/2019

Hello You!

I decided to stay up and watch this one tonight and also decided to write up the G1 matches from the show as well. If I get a chance I’ll do this more over the course of the tournament. I’m sure there’ll be someone covering it in full as well.

Obviously this contains SPOILERS, so don’t read beyond the “Read more” section if you’re trying to avoid the results.

Mike Reviews: New Japan Pro Wrestling Dominion in Osaka – 09/06/2019

Hello You!

This one worked out well for me due to it happening 8am UK time, so I decided to do a write up for it. The main event on this one is Kazuchika Okada defending the IWGP Heavyweight Title against Chris Jericho, but there’s also a match scheduled between Kota Ibushi and Tetsuya Naito, which is a big rematch from the MSG Show over WrestleMania weekend, and that’s even before we get to a match between Will Ospreay and Dragon Lee, which should be all kind of awesome.

So please join me as we take a journey to Osaka for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s presentation of Dominion!

The event is emanating from Osaka-Jo Hall, in Osaka, Japan

Calling the action are Kevin Kelley, Don Callis and Chris Charlton

Mike Reviews: NJPW 47th Anniversary Show – 06/03/2019

I’ve got a day off from work today and this was on, so I decided to watch it as I rarely get a chance to watch New Japan as it actually happens anymore and I was interested to see how the main event would turn out.

This is the Anniversary of New Japan’s first ever show on the 6th of March 1972, which saw Antonio Inoki take on Karl Gotch.

Wow, 47 years of New Japan, it’s done well to last so long, especially as thinks looked a bit dicey in the early to mid 00’s when Inoki was pushing anyone with shoot fight experience to the main event. Thankfully Inoki was eventually booted out and the company decided to put the world title on Hiroshi Tanahashi, and the rest is history.
